What if you could make
everything you eat more delicious?
As creator of the WNYC
podcast The Sporkful and
host of the Cooking Channel web series You’re
Eating It Wrong, Dan Pashman is obsessed with doing just that. Eat More Better weaves
science and humor into a definitive, illustrated guidebook for anyone who loves
food. But this book isn’t for foodies. It’s for eaters.
In the bestselling tradition
of Alton Brown’s Good
Eats and M. F. K.
Fisher’s The Art of Eating,
Pashman analyzes everyday foods in extraordinary detail to answer some of the
most pressing questions of our time, including: Is a cheeseburger better when
the cheese is on the bottom, closer to your tongue, to accentuate cheesy
goodness? What are the ethics of cherry-picking specific ingredients from a
snack mix? And what role does surface-area-to-volume ratio play in fried food
enjoyment and ice cube selection?
Written with an infectious
blend of humor and smarts, Eat
More Better is a tongue-in-cheek textbook that teaches readers to
eat for maximum pleasure. Chapters are divided into subjects like engineering,
philosophy, economics, and physical science, and illustrate key concepts like
The Porklift—a bacon lattice structure placed beneath a pancake stack to
elevate it off the plate, thus preventing the bottom pancake from becoming
soggy with syrup and imbuing the bacon with maple-based deliciousness.
Eat More Better combines
Pashman’s award-winning writing with his unparalleled field research, collected
over thirty-seven years of eating at least three times a day. It delivers
entertaining, fascinating, and practical insights that will satisfy your mind
and stomach, and change the way you look at food forever.
